This place is so exclusive you need to take a private charter to fly there! Then you hop on a speedboat which zigzags you round vast limestone rocks until finally you bounce towards an enormous looming outcrop- it’s only as you get close you’ll notice the resort, so dwarfed by its natural surroundings that it looks like a dolls house.
Most guests don’t stay longer than two or three days because a visit doesn’t come cheap. But once you are there, everything is included.
The star of the show here is the archipelago; the activities the staff encourage you to sign up for as soon as you set foot on the dock are all about making the most of it. You can kayak to secluded islands; have a picnic on a private beach which staff set up then leave you to enjoy the solitude; try windsurfing, snorkel amongst vast swirling shoals of synchronised fish, explore caves and lagoons; hike to viewpoints with the ocean on both sides; you can even hop on a boat to visit the sister island resort for lunch and a dip in their freshwater pool.
The Asya Premier is the Asya’s stunning big sister. A short minivan ride away from the main street this hotel delivers the wow factor as soon as you approach the open air reception, with its massive wooden furniture and sweeping resort views. It’s an intimate place that has got the details just right; each of the villas perched high above the bay is jaw-droppingly plush. From the huge bath in the lush open air bathroom to the generous terrace with soft day beds your room will spell the sort of luxury you won’t want to leave. The resort is built into the cliff side to really maximise the bay side views.
Find a spot on one of the circular loungers and enjoy a cocktail or two as you watch the hundreds of colourful sailboats flock to the beach at sunset. Then either enjoy top class dining at one of the Asya’s stylish restaurants, or saunter down the sweeping steps to the beach and follow the twinkling lights ahead. You’ll find vibrant beach bars and toes-in-the-sand dining along the long stretch of Boracay’s marvellously lively and eclectic White Beach.
